Trial results have shown that a pH-balanced form of vitamin C, sodium ascorbate, effectively treats sepsis, the life-threatening complication from infection that claims 270,000 American lives every year. This treatment may not be far off use in hospitals.
Researchers have discovered that a chemical in the brain makes alcohol taste bitter to women. It may explain the difference in drinking habits between the sexes and pave the way for novel treatments to help women curb excessive alcohol use.
